Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

Well, then again the original idea is taking off with https://solidproject.org/ with millions of pods by Tim Berner-Lee's Inrupt to go online this Spring.

Web3/Crypto: Why Bother?

> Nothing in the web2 tech stack currently allows this.
Seriously? It takes five seconds online to find projects like https://solidproject.org (backed by people like Tim Bernes-Lee) that don’t need blockchain and present strong arguments to address the kind of issues you raise.
But it’s an open specification for the web. How lame and very NOT crypto $$$diamond_hands$$$.
The most impressive thing about blockchain is its capacity to create zealots for the One True Way, all others be damned.

Tim Berners-Lee is already heading-up an actual web3 solution that isn't blockchain bollocks, and you can use it (and contribute to it) now! It's called the Solid Project.
Why web3 will change the rules of the game and kick start a crypto currency super cycle

That’s the semantic web - or like Tim Berner Lee’s Solid project (https://solidproject.org/). Or Wikidata.
Is a decentralized internet possible?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/SiliconValleyHBO | 14 Dec 2021
https://solidproject.org/ This work by Tim Berners Lee's group at MIT is one approach.
SOLID principles tell you how to arrange your functions into classes and how those classes should be interrelated.

different “solid” mate, though your link does look useful: https://solidproject.org
Is Web3 really the future?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/webdev | 6 Dec 2021
Nah - we're coming-up on the end of the current crypto bubble cycle, and so we're approaching peak hype. It's possible that we do end-up heading towards a decentralised internet - which could be something rad like Tim Berners-Lee's Solid Project, or some dystopian bleakness out of a Neal Stephenson novel with additional layers on the Ethereum network etc - but if we do end-up going down that route it's still a long way off from being useful to the general public, and there's no need to add learning it to your 'to-do' list in the near future unless it's something you're personally very excited about.
Kanidm: A simple, secure and fast identity management platform

Here is the OAuth/OIDC issue: https://github.com/kanidm/kanidm/issues/278
They are talking here: https://github.com/kanidm/kanidm/pull/485 about being an IdP with support for OIDC, so once that is implemented you could probably federate to Keycloak (or any other compliant IdP).
Might be worth filing an issue, I'm sure they'd love the feedback.
Interesting that they are choosing to provide an integrated solution including user management and OAuth IdP ( https://github.com/kanidm/kanidm/pull/485 ) rather than plug into existing open source or even commercial offerings.
Here's a design doc about their OAuth choices: https://github.com/kanidm/kanidm/blob/master/designs/oauth.r...
It would seem simpler to go with the Ory approach of "best in breed" for, say network management tooling (most of which they already have implemented), and then integrate with Keycloak, Okta, FusionAuth, the Ory suite, etc for user management. Maybe they didn't want to do that because there are synergies with integrated user management? I dunno, seems like there are a lot of user management tools out there.
I also find it interesting that they explicitly disallow a goal of building a better LDAP server. I think there's a lot of room to run in that. My employer has had users show a fair bit of interest in a modern experience with LDAP layered on top ( https://github.com/FusionAuth/fusionauth-issues/issues/954 ) and I talked to someone at a conference that had built a whole business out of virtual LDAP: https://www.radiantlogic.com . They were working with companies with multiple LDAP based auth systems, and providing a way to have apps see one view of the user.
Maybe kanidm isn't that project, but it seems like a modern OSS LDAP implementation would be welcomed by the software community.
Disclosure: I work at FusionAuth.

Whats your favourite open source Rust project that needs more recognition?

Kanidm, it might not sound as fun or exciting but this sound engineering driven by exceptional people. Similarly, concread.

saml-rs, creating a SAML IdP in rust, kind of spun out of trying to do it for Kanidm.
What are SUSE's biggest contributions to the Linux world?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/openSUSE | 30 Aug 2021
And now they employ one of the lead 389 Directory Server developers (now the default in SUSE instead of OpenLDAP which is is still available but is going to be depreciated). The same person is also the lead developer of Kandim, a new beta IDM that looks really promising (but is likely quite some time from being ready for enterprise production).
